Absolutely loving these hand-tooled & painted riding masks. Would seriously love to score one of these in a more traditional motif for the cooler riding months...

Strange Freak Designs out of Japan is doing some crazy-amazing skull rings. This dude has some serious skills (and skulls). I really love the stuff he's doing. Sad to say they're a bit out of my price range, but they are SO gorgeous!

I really love the stuff this Matthew Ryan Sharp guy does. The combination of bold, simple lines and chaotic colors is striking.
He'll be in attendance at this solo show at Oh No Doom! in Chicago this month, too!

Trying to put some of the mass quantities of cardboard we burn through at work to better purpose. So I'm doing some doodles on it!
Second shot. Still need to spend a bit more time to get him looking really good (and black out the eye sockets). Fun!

What an awesome collaboration! Love!
Original drawing by DevilDust Tattoo design by Zook Vector and Sculpture by [rich] Tattoo by Adam Riley @ Alkali Tattoo, Janesville, WI Via Flickr: International collaboration. I'm really rather stoked the way all of these designs converged. Absolutely awesome. From DD's original design which inspired my tattoo design, to [rich]s vector on to the tattoo, and culminating in [rich]s 3D sculpt. Awesome!

Yes. Another David Lozeau post. What can I say? I'm a fan.
David's "El Mecanico" shirt has been out for a bit now, but I just learned that he has plans to get some work shirts printed up with this design on it and for THAT I'm so totally stoked. I freakin' LIVE in Red Kapp work shirts, so I'll be definitely scoring one of them when he has them in hand.
As for the Mecanico t's shown here; Good deal at $20, methinks. I think some folks go way overboard on pricing for screenprinted shirts and twenty bucks is usually about my threshold of what I'll pay.
As always, check out David's site for TONS of other goodies; original art, prints, sculptures and more! David also posts up videos and photos of painting progress which are always interesting.
As always, stay tasty!

My good buddy, [rich] sculpted this based on my latest tattoo which was based on a doodle by our mutual friend DevilDust (Double D).
AND! He's sending it to ME! Squee!
How do I rate, eh?
Was up early this morning so thought I'd not waste the time and made my good friend Zook a little sculpt (he's always on at me for not sculpting enough skulls) - so here's one of his Flying Skull Bat tattoo emblem:
- hope ya like it Zook I'll send him over asap,
More awesomeness by David Lozeau!
"These bad boys were sculpted in clay, cast in resin, hand-painted, antiqued, and then clear-coated to achieve a distinctively British 1960s counterculture appearance. They make great gifts, shift knobs*, or desk accessories for motorcycle and car lovers!"
"Colors vary and inventory is extemely limited in this small run of custom sculptures."
Hand-cast in resin. From an original clay sculpt. And hand-painted. All that for only fifty bones! Tasty!
I'm a little late on this, but just re-discovered this beautiful necklace by the mad-talented David Lozeau.
From David's site:
"Based on David's "El Mecanico" painting, the Skinny Dog Design Group hand-crafted this 1.5" x 1" sterling silver pendant and paired it with an 18" sterling silver chain. From the intricate details on the bandanna to the tiny groves on the wrenches, this unique piece of jewelry exudes quality and style.Each skull pendant is stamped .925, DLo, and Skinny Dog. Only 20 will be made in this special edition, licensed run."
Still some left! What a loverly piece of jewelry!

Needless to say I was heartbroken.
For one reason or another I had not gotten around to ordering a replacement (cheap bastard), but today a friend of mine sent me a text that she was drinking out of a mug with a jolly roger on it and that it had made her think of me. I responed that _I_ needed a mug with a skull on it and promptly headed over to etsy and, within minutes, had purchased a replacemnt mug!
Yaaayyy!! Can't wait for this baby to show up.
And that brings me to my NEXT point. Back when I ordered my mug this summer I had talked with the Skeletaldropkick about possibly doing a giveaway. She was kind enough to offer up another one of a kind Skeletaldropkick mugs for me to offer to one of our loyal readers (we do have some, right?). So. Long overdue: I have another mug, similar to the one displayed here, in white, that I would like to give away! Yaaayyyy! Free skull mug! I'll even take care of the shipping so long as you reside in these united states!
How, you may ask, should be able to obtain such a prize? Good question. Hmmm... Lemme think for a moment. I hadn't planned this out very well...

Skullhouse. One of my favorite shops at etsy.com These slip cast skulls, created by the mad-talented "Cyrus The Potter" are amazing to behold. I currently own three Skullhouse skulls and am certainly not done.
One of Cyrus' latest, "Skulls On Board" is a grouping of four porcelain skulls with a dry metallic surface that he's paired with a salvaged wooden "shelf". Looks amazing.
Plenty of more details at the Skullhouse listing for this beautry at Skullhouse on etsy.com
Cheers! Stay tasty!

The project has several steps, the first of which was the original tattoo design as shown. Next Dauvit is using the design as inspiration for creating a custom-built tattoo machine which will feature, among other things, the skull and heart as pictured; hearts cast in copper, skulls in silver.
The final step of the project, as planned, will be to have the original design tattooed onto Dauvit's calf, possibly as part of the "Beneath The Skin" show itself.
Dauvit does some truly amazing metalworks, specializing in jewelry. I'm fortunate to own a custom-made bracelet that Dauvit created for me and I must say that man is a master. Do check out his other works at Flickr: The Justified Sinner
Cheers! And stay tasty!

Chaos Skull comission.
Motorcycle tank stencil design for Ms. Antiorder. Check out her blog @ TheMotoLady or follow her on twitter @themotolady
This was really a fun design to work on. We went through a number of variations before this one just sort of clicked into place just before I decided my skillset wasn't right for the project.
8X10" Ink on 80lb Strathmore drawing paper.
Thanks for following along.

Major kudos out to Zenx13 & [rich] who both completed their 365 project for 2010! A skull a day for 365 days. Very impressive. This piece is #365, a collaboration between both artists that I was invited to scribble on as well!
Make sure and head over to flickr and check out all 730 skulls these fine chaps doodled up!
